EFSA Intends to Prepare Inventory of Food Additives in the Area of Nanotechnologies

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) published in the October 10, 2012, Official Journal of the European Union a call for tender to prepare a background document on the current knowledge in the field of nanotechnology and prepare an inventory of food additives/food contact materials/feed additives applications of nanotechnologies currently used and/or reasonably foreseen to be used. See http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/tenders/tender/cftefsafeed201201.htm According to the tender specifications, the tasks will include:

-Performing an extensive literature search to summarize the knowledge in the field of nanotechnology applied to food and feed;

-Producing inventory lists for each type of application (e.g., food additives, enzymes, flavorings, food contact material, novel foods, feed additives, and pesticides), including at least one inventory list for food additives, one for food contact materials, and one for feed additives applications of nanotechnologies currently used and/or reasonably foreseen to be used;

-Reviewing the existing non-European Union (EU) legislation on the authorization of food additives/food contact materials/feed additives application in the area of nanotechnology; and

-Preparing a final report.

The length of the contract will be one year and is not renewable. Responses were due November 23, 2012. EFSA estimates that the contract will be completed in January 2014.
